This lost gem from 1971 by Barbara & Ernie, is quite an oddity. The unlikely pairing of guitarist Ernie Calabria and soul singer Barbara Massey came together to record this album of outlandish, genre-defying hybrids. The fruits of their collaboration are best described as a cross-pollination of folk, R&B and psychedelic acid soul. Consequently, this music met with baffled ears upon its initial release and quickly disappeared into obscurity.
The LP includes a cool cover version of Jefferson Airplane’s ‘Somebody To Love‘.
